Church people identify with their church and it’s doctrines, not with Jesus. Christians identify with and follow Jesus,  His words and His commandments. Many people profess to be Christians but they are not of Jesus, thus they are not Christians.
There is a huge divide between church people and disciples of Jesus. Church people discriminate on the basis of their church denomination. If you talk about Jesus they will ask you which church you belong to. If you reply that you belong to Jesus and not to a church, you are immediately viewed and treated with suspicion, most often  with contempt.  They look down on you. If you follow Jesus and associate with Him, you will be hated by all men, especially church people. 
There is a clear separation between church people and the children of God, the true followers of Jesus. They are not of the same kingdom. Churches are respected by the world. They are of the world, with beautiful architecture, to impress the world. The clergy wear special clothes to distinguish them. They have titles and are respected by the world, but they are an abomination to God.
Church people and Jesus’ followers are incompatible. They are not of the same kingdom  Jesus’ disciples follow Him and live according to His words, the words that He spoke and taught, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  “3By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; 5but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: 6the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.” 1 John 2:3-6.
Do you follow Jesus or do you belong to a church?
Are you of the kingdom of God or of this world? 
May Jesus bless you.
